Oh ... another benefit of peat is that the acid keeps fungus from devouring the eggs.
For foods, I'm feeding the parents a combination of the following: Hikari Freeze Dried Daphnia, Beef Heart Flakes, Multi Flake, Hikari Freeze Dried Blood Worms, Live Grindal Worms, and finally Live mosquito larva which had been laid in one of my fishless tanks by a rogue mosquito!
Very good point on the peat moss and fungus! Yet another great benefit!

Me too! I'm not out of the woods yet with the glowlight rearing though. Let's hope my luck keeps up.

So far I haven't replaced any, and I'm a little worried about that step when the time comes. I'll just add a little at a time and hope for the best.

Hmm... You guys have me a little worried about the infusoria. I had chosen not to make up a batch of infusoria a few days ago based on the size of the fry. It looks to me like they could take mini microworms, yet I've not seen them eat yet to this day. (Currently Day 7) They could be eating when I'm not watching though. Maybe I should have made some anyway as a precaution...
